At the City & Guilds Group we encourage a very inclusive culture. To do this we actively listen to the views of our staff through the following ways:
The Employee Forum
The Employee Forum independently represents the voice of all employees, to ensure City & Guilds Group is an outstanding organisation to work for, where employees are highly valued and feel highly valued.
Supporting Group Strategy, The Employee Forum provides a two-way channel for Communication between the Board and staff. Employee Forum core themes include; Supporting People Work Streams, Career Development & Collaboration across the Group. We host regular games Fridays where people can play table tennis, PlayStation and board games that gives employees a chance to talk to representatives from the Employee Forum in an informal setting.
Lunch with Chris Jones, CEO
Our CEO invests time to connect with staff across the organisation in an informal way by hosting regular lunchtime sessions.
We also recognise Unite union for certain groups of our staff.
We regularly run a staff survey on a range of topics leading to an action planning process to address issues raised.
